Bright as a pearl
As Caroline Li pursues a career in food writing and critiquing, she turns to La Prairie to keep her skin looking firm and nourished for events
Growing up, all of Caroline Li’s favourite books from her childhood were about food—such as Eric Carle’s classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar—which eventually grew into a passion for food and wine and further studies at the famed Le Cordon Bleu culinary institute in San Francisco.
“I’m a Californian girl at heart and San Francisco is now considered one of the best food cities in the US, so to enroll at the Le Cordon Bleu there is a natural choice,” says Caroline. “Apart from furthering my culinary skills and knowledge, I had the opportunity to gain work experience at some of the city’s top restaurants, such as the Italian restaurant Quince that has two Michelin stars.”
Caroline now divides her time between being a food columnist for Hongkongtatler.com, where her articles will be available soon, and documenting photos and reviews of popular restaurants on her food-related Instagram account @cazzfoodjournal. In between reviewing restaurants, Caroline attends various events around town when she can and relies on La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Collection to keep her complexion looking firm and nourished.
“If I have to attend an event, I usually try to fit in a hot yoga session beforehand to get rid of water retention. Then I’ll apply La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Luxe Cream · Sheer on my face to make it glow,” says Caroline. “I try to keep the process simple, so I can relax and enjoy the event with my friends.”
A fresh take on the much-loved Skin Caviar Luxe Cream, the Skin Caviar Luxe Cream · Sheer also contains caviar extract and La Prairie’s exclusive “Cellular Complex” formula to hydrate and increase the skin’s elasticity, in a lightweight texture that glides on smoothly.
Caroline also likes to use the Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream and lather on the Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask at night, which does double duty of eliminating dead skin cells while moisturising the skin. “I swear by the range, even when I am travelling. The Skin Caviar Collection helps keep my skin hydrated and fresh throughout cold weather and long-haul flights.”
And while Caroline is a fan of the range because of the quality results it delivers on her skin, she finds it amusing that she, a foodie, will be drawn to a collection of skincare that is closely associated with caviar.
“I love caviar, I’m a bit of a purist and tend to have it plain with blinis. Having it plain allows you to savour the full flavour of the caviar and I love the texture of the pearls. Maybe that’s part of the reason why I was drawn to La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Collection in the first place,” says Caroline with a laugh.
